Perth's Weather Has Betrayed All Our Summer Dreams
Although Perth is heading for a top of 27 degrees on Friday, the rain isn’t done with us yet.
As Fitzi said during the Breakfast program: “Get your boat and drive it to work”.
Perth has recorded its second-wettest day on record with more than 100 millimetres of rain falling since 9am on Thursday.
Perth's 2nd wettest ever day with 106mm since 9am 9th Feb....still 4 hours to go! 120.6mm fell on 9th Feb 1992. #hissingdown— BOM WA (@BOM_WA) February 9, 2017
The city also looks set to be Perth’s coldest February day on record.
On Thursday it reached only 17.4 degrees, and on Friday, we need to stay below 19 degrees until 9am to enter the record books. At 5.40am, it was 15.2 degrees.
The rain has left flooded roads around the city, with reduced visibility and a warning of dangerous driving conditions from the Bureau of Meteorology.
In the metro area, about 2000 Wester Power customers had found themselves without electricity, the majority of those in Gosnells and Byford. Most of which has already been restored.
